The 3049 is an HF band Antenna Tuner designed for use with most end-fed long wire and base whip antenna systems for base station applications.

With its robust design, extended interface cable capability and high performance, the 3049 provides an ideal choice for base stations requiring a tuned HF base station antenna solution.

With 125 W RF power handling capability, the 3049 can be used for full duty cycle voice and data operation over the full 2 to 30 MHz frequency band, within rated environmental conditions. The tuner incorporates the Codan fast tune interface and tune from memory capability and is compatible with timing dependant calling protocols such as 2G and 3G ALE.
